Mica McNeill is a double Olympian and a World Cup medalist with more than 125 international appearances to her name. 

Mica piloted Team GB to the country's best-ever female Olympic finish as she and Mica Moore placed eighth in PyeongChang in 2018.

She finished 17th at her second games alongside Montell Douglas in Beijing in February 2022.

Mica won a maiden World Cup medal as recently as January, when she secured a stunning silver alongside Adele Nicoll in Sigulda. That podium place in Latvia was the country's first female World Cup medal for 13 years.

She previously set a then-career-best fourth with Douglas at the World Cup event in Altenberg in January 2019 and matched that feat in Igls in December 2020. 

Prior to the PyeongChang Games - and on the back of a successful crowdfunding campaign after a reduction in her level of national funding - Mica drove GB to the nation's then best Women’s World Cup result in almost nine years as she and Moore finished equal fifth in Whistler in November 2017.

Mica joined the British Bobsleigh programme in 2010 after former World Champion Nicola Minichiello visited her school looking for athletes to compete at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2012. The former County Durham netballer and hockey player duly competed at the Youth Olympics in Igls, winning a silver medal alongside now Commonwealth long jump siver medalist Jazmin Sawyers.

She went on to taste North American Cup (NAC) glory when she won gold in Calgary in 2012 and she picked up four NAC medals in as many races in 2016/17 with three silvers and a bronze.

Mica backed up that success by enjoying a double celebration in January 2017 when she won Junior World Championship gold with Moore in Winterberg two days after claiming Europa Cup glory with Douglas at the same track and a further four gold medals in as many races followed on the NAC circuit in November and December 2018.

Having won bronze at the Junior Worlds in 2013, she has now competed at seven Senior World Championships between 2013 and 2021, setting a personal best of eighth with Douglas in Altenberg in 2020.
